is preparing to sit down for a one-on-one interview right here on cnn. we're going to ask him to tell us exactly when he left bain capital, why he won't release more of his tax returns. his interview with our own jim acosta coming up here in "the situation room." also, president obama barnstorms across a battleground state he desperately needs to hold. >>> and the chilling video diary recorded by a man plotting to kill his own family. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> as we await jim acosta's interview with mitt romney, there are important new developments in a search for a running mate. we're seeing reports that there is now a short list of possibilities and the biggest name on that so-called short list is the former secretary of state, condoleezza rice. let's bring in dana bash. she's working the story for us. the name has been floated out there for a while. but all of a sudden it's getting a bit more imptous. >> interesting you used the term floated. there's no question this is a trial balloon and a clever way for the romney campaign to change the sject from a whol
. >> reporter: some gop sources tell cnn they can't imagine romney would want to reopen wounds from the bush years. last but hardly least, rice's stance on abortion. she calls herself "mildly pro-choice". >> i worry about the government being involved in, but i'm like most americans. i think abortion is a terrible thing. >> reporter: one anti-abortion group already e-mailed around this clip of romney last year saying the running mates he would consider would be anti-abortion. >> i would expect they would all be pro-life and pro-traditional marriage. >> reporter: several prominent conservative leaders tell cnn rice's abortion stance disqualifies her because there's so much distrust of romney on the issue. >> he needs to have a running mate who is without question pro-life. but rather who has a portfolio of leading out on that issue and being a voice for the unborn. >> now, it's important to note that rice herself has had multiple times including to our own piers morgan that she doesn't want the job. and her statements appear to be more airtight and a bit more genuine that others who have said
dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemployment. that's
with breaking news. mitt romney one-on-one, speaking out on cnn. the gop presidential candidate is on the defensive tonight. his campaign added two new senior advisers after a rough few days. and now they're hitting back, accusing the obama campaign of stooping to new lows. the issue, once again mr. romney's involvement at bain capital where he made his fortune. the focus centers around when he finally broke ties with that firm. the obama camp is claiming mr. romney lied about his end date at bain. even suggesting his actions could be criminal. to counter attack, mr. romney went on a media blitz today. something he rarely does. he talked with cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta this evening. >> governor, thanks for joining us. let's talk first about this controversy over when you left bain capital. i'll put one of the documents in question up on screen. their sec filing stating that you were ceo at bain capital past 1999. when you say you left bain to run the olympics. why was your name still on these documents? and why didn't you clear this up sooner? >> well, i w
. >> well, first of all we've complied with the law. >> what mitt romney made clear to cnn last friday is he will only make public his tax return. >> those are the two years that people are going to have. >> -- did not sit well with conservatives on the sunday show. >> he should release the tax returns tomorrow. it's crazy. take the hit for a day or two. >> the costs of not releasing the returns are clear. therefore he wants to calculate there are higher costs. >> standing firm, romney told fox there's some precedent on his side. >> john mccain ran for president and released two years of tax returns. john kerry ran for president. his wife who has hundreds of millions of dollars never released her tax returns. somehow this wasn't an issue. >> but the republican complaints are music to the ears for the obama campaign, which fired off this tv ad, featuring romney singing "america the beautiful" to some of his foreign investments. >> the romney campaign cued up the own music video. the president belting out a love song to companies that got energy loans in exchange for campaign contributions. ro
video of the suspect, james holmes' booby trapped apartment tells cnn it was rigged with more than 30 homemade grenades and ten gallons of gasoline. the source says that would have created a fireball knocking out walls engulfing the entire building in flames undoubtedly killing many more people. cnn's ed lavandera is joining us now once again from aurora, colorado. ed, what else are you learning? there are new developments emerging even as we speak. >> reporter: well, there's a great deal going on behind the scenes, but now there's a great effort to make sure that the principle players and many of the people involved in these investigations no longer speak publicly about what is going on. the judge issuing a gag order. ever since that has happened, it's become much more difficult to be able to report on this story and to keep up with what is going on. but we're told a few days ago by the police chief here in aurora that today, tuesday, would be the day defense attorneys would get a chance to go through the movie theater to do their own analysis inside the movie theater and gather thei
he misspoke in that conference call. let's bring in our cnn chief political analyst gloria borger in "the situation room" as well. the ad we just saw in dan's piece, part of a broader picture that the obama administration, the obama campaign is trying to project. >> as you know this is the summer when it's time to define your opponent. it's not rocket science here, wolf. what the obama campaign is trying to do is paint a very, very unflattering portrait of mitt romney. he is, according to the obama campaign, secretive, tax avoiding businessman who outsources jobs and cares nothing about the middle class. that is of course on top of his wealth. so it's a caricature but sometimes care ka churs can stick particularly when you're spending $25 million a month most of which is in negative advertising. so that can stick. and the problem for romney right now is that unless he releases his taxes or continues to -- or give some more information about his taxes or even bain, these questions will be raised. don't forget, wolf, you were there. these questions were raised by his republican oppo
on. cnn's tom foreman has been investigating. tom, take us inside what was clearly designed to be a death trap, that apartment. you've been looking at how it was all assembled. >> yeah, wolf. this is really one of the great mysteries of the story. exactly what was the configuration inside this apartment. i want to talk about what we do know. look at this video from a few days back when authorities were trying to get in to this place. they were looking through the window moving very slowly. all explanations are because inside they were being met with an array of different explosives and triggers and potential problems. what do we know about what was inside that apartment? well f you look at this diagram here, it gives you some idea of what we're pretty certain of at this point. in the middle of the room were about 30 of these canisters, each about the size of a softball. this is the same sort of thing they use for fireworks displays that shoot up into the air. these we believe were packed with black powder. now, the way they were packed and the way they were wired would make

. >> reporter: wolf, naacp leaders told cnn they praised mitt romney for showing what they called courage in coming to this convention today. but safe to say mitt romney did not hide his positions on issues that are dear to the civil rights group. and members of the naacp did not hide their feelings about mitt romney. >> honorable mitt romney this morning is our speaker. [ applause ] >> reporter: at first the applause for mitt romney at the naacp was polite. but that did not last long. when the gop contender pledged to get the national debt under control in part by repealing the president's health care law, the crowd let him have it. >> and so to do that i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care. and i'm going to work to reform and save -- >> reporter: the boos lasted 15 seconds. the most sustained negative response romney has received in this campaign. the chair of the naacp's national board said members objected to romney's use of the term obama care, a buzz word coined by the critics. >> that was a loaded statement. and the crowd

for your time, we appreciate it. >> thanks, guys. >> cnn's jim acosta, who conducted that interview, joins me. along with cnn's chief political analyst gloria borger. there's clearly a strategy here. your interview, other network interviews as well, part of the strategy by the romney campaign. would you say the takeaway is that the campaign is very worried about this bain story and how it's unfolding? >> i think so, soledad. we got very late notice about this interview possibility. heard about it, about 1:00 this afternoon, and found out the governor was doing a round robin of interviews. because of the fact he said almost the same thing to all of us is an indication that, yes, they were working on this message and they wanted to get it out there. >> gloria, you were in boston. you just got back from the romney headquarters in boston. give us a sense of how the campaign is handling this and what changing they're making to deal with some of this. >> i can tell you, as jim said, that romney was outraged, the campaign was pretty outraged. it's clear, though, they believe, by setting up all th
and at times a very reaction to what he had to say. >> i want to bring up a tweet we saw from cnn contributor. he is a former speech writer for george w. bush. i would wonder whether the romney campaign wanted to be booed at the naacp. that whole line, could he maybe been aiming at his own base with that one? >> i asked the romney campaign that very question when we had a chance to talk with them. they did not respond to that question but were peppered with so many questions i think they were having trouble answering all of them. they didn't have time to answer all of them. i will say that mitt romney did get a lot of conservative props on twitter and social media for coming to this group and sticking to his principles and policy positions. he did not tailor his speech. he said he would repeal the president's signature legislative achievement, that is the health care law and tipped off a number of other iemts. and so even the leadership of the naacp that i talked to after this event were saying mitt romney showed a lot of courage in coming here today. >> speaking of props you eluded to this.
afford to pay more. and this is an idea that historically, including in cnn orc polls has polled well on how wealthier americans pay more money. but it also has trouble getting through congress. president obama backed the same idea in 2010. he tried but ultimately ended up signing a two-year extension for all across the board tax cuts from the bush era tax cuts. and wolf, i will say republicans now seizing on this. white house speaker john boehner saying this is just president obama trying to distract from the poor job numbers that we saw out on friday. >> what would happen -- i know you've been checking with your sources over there, brianna, if the house of representatives, which has a lopsided republican majority and the senate, which has a narrow democratic majority, but they're half a dozen democrats who may vote with republicans on this one. let's say they pass legislation to extend the bush tax cuts for another year for everyone. middle class as well as wealthy, would the president of the united states veto that legislation? >> white house press secretary jay carney said today h

in our brand new cnn orc poll. and the surprising divide over which candidate they think will do a better job. also, a stunning turn in the strained relationship between the united states and pakistan. the pakistani government reopening a critical supply route for the united states and its allies as the secretary of state, hillary clinton, apologizes for the deadly nato attack that ultimately shut down that supply route. >>> and it's not a hose or shovel, but it's a laptop. why computers are now a cutting edge tool in the battle against the raging colorado wildfires. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> first to our brand new cnn orc polls. this is issue number one, the economy. and a surprising jump in the number of americans who believe the economy will eventually get better. take a look at this. when asked about what economic conditions will be like next year, 60% now say they believe they will be good compared to only 39% who say conditions will be poorer. last fall when we asked the same question, those numbers were very different indeed. only 39% saying things would
last month over allegations he misled the court about his finances. cnn's david matingly is in florida. the judge set bail at $1 million but still has strong words for him. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, the cost to zimmerman may go far beyond the $100,000 cash in collateral he has to put up to make that bond. there is a tremendous loss to his credibility throughout this entire process. the judge having some very strong words for him in the ruling. and they run like this saying that george zimmerman flaunted the system, tried to manipulate the system and had no justification for his deception when he tried to tell the court that he didn't have any money and didn't have any means to live when in fact he had $100,000 in donated cash and a passport on him. the judge also went on -- and this was a real surprise, that george zimmerman he believed was preparing to flee to avoid prosecution but plans were thwarted. the judge doesn't go into detail about how those plans were or how they came undone, but they believe george zimmerman was a flight risk. now we see him with a $1 million bo
obama at 49% to romney's 43%. that's a three percentage point increase from just last month. cnn's political director mark preston joins us now from washington, d.c. nice to have you with us this morning, mark. the poll shows the race is in a statistical dead heat. there are also bullet points that both candidates will find a bit concerning. can you share those details with us? >> sure, zoraida. i think we'll expect the horse race all the way up to november to stay this close. this is going to be one of those real, real tight presidential elections p. but, of course, there are certain bullet points that we focus on wn we're looking at these numbers. let's look at this number on the economy. the economy, issue number one in this election. what most voters will likely vote on come november. mitt romney has a six-point advantage over president obama right now when asked who has a better idea to improve the economy. very good news for the romney campaign up in boston when they see that number. however, out in chicago, you can see that the obama campaign can take solace in this number

have to tell you that cnn orc poll indicates that nationwide one thing is clear, the number one issue on voters' minds happens to be jobs and the economy. the november election may come down to a key question, which candidate is better able to handle the economy? a brand new cnn orc national poll suggests voters haven't made up their minds. president obama and republican mitt romney are in a dead heat well within the margin of error. >> what a president believes matters. >> reporter: today the obama campaign rolled out another ad in crucial swing states like riegtd here in ohio calling romney an outsourcer during his time running bane capital. it's part of a strategy to erode one of romney's key strengths. so far our polling shows independent voters crucial in this election prefer the presumptivive republican nominee on the economy by 11 points. part of the sale the obama campaign needs to make especially isn't the seven key toss up states is that the economy is getting better or that stagnation isn't their fault. >> we've added millions and millions of jobs and the economy is moving
will certainly be the star of the show. but cnn has learned that bill clinton, the former president, will also have a very, very prominent role. let's go straight to white house correspondent brianna keilar. the two men, as a lot of us remember, they haven't always had the closest relationship, have they? >> no, wolf. during the height of the last go-round, the democratic primaries where you saw barack obama and hillary clinton duking it out in 2007 and 2008, sources tell cnn former president bill clinton felt very bitterly towards president obama because he felt his wife had been mistreated. now some of the wounds did heal after the election when you saw president obama -- then president-elect obama appointing secretary clinton as his secretary of state. and now you have a situation where bill clinton is one of his most visible surrogates. >> when bill clinton took the stage at the democratic convention in 2008, the crowd went wild. ♪ at first they wouldn't even let him start talking. >> i am honored to be here tonight.

, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. cnn's national political correspondent, jim acosta, is in bolling green, ohio, where mitt romney just finished a town hall. >> reporter: wolf, mitt romney is announcing an all-out attack. the gop contender's response can be summed ups a, oh, no, you didn't. after days of attacks on his business record, mitt romney hopes he has found a way to change the story. and it has nothing to do with naming a running mate. >> how many people here were people who began a business or leading a business in this room please stand up? what he's saying is if someone has succeeded, if they'd built something, he's saying they didn't really build it. no, it was the government. it was the government that takes responsibilities. >> reporter: that get out of bain free card may have come in remarks made by the president last friday. a comment romney is blasting as anti-business. >> if you've got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> reporter: romney's campaign manager is now fund raising off of the comment saying they ar

doggett, a senior member of the house budget committee. >> great to join you. >> cnn money spoke with several economists and found they are mostly in favor of some extension of the bush tax cuts. in fact, majority of those economists say they want all tax cuts extended, all of them. one of these economists specifically cited politics, by just favoring one group of taxpayers and not another, you reduce the possibility of the tax cuts being passed. we don't need to raise taxes in the short term. when unemployment is down to 6%, we can talk about phasing out tax cuts, own though that could be in a while. the president is promising, 100% committed to these tax cuts for the middle class and below. what do you think of the economists saying, why don't you do it for everyone? >> we've got an economist with an opinion on just about everything but i think the economic facts are that tax breaks, more tax breaks for those at the very top just have not produced jobs. they certainly didn't in the bush years. they only grew the debt and deficits. i believe that we ought not to provide tax brea
